Monsoon weddings can usually be tough to pull off. However, with desis there is no such thing, keeping in mind their jugaad. In a video shared by IPS officer Dipanshu Kabra on Twitter, a baraat is seen moving after a decorated bus. The video shows the guests dancing their hearts out in rain with the most carefree attitude as they are covered under the shade of a huge yellow tarpaulin cover. Instead of stopping when the rain hit, the groom’s relatives and friends were seen dancing in the rain, completely enjoying the vibe. Have a look at the video:
इससे Epic बारात मैंने आज तक नहीं देखी. 😅😅

Meanwhile, umbaikars were treated with pre-monsoon showers and soon #MumbaiRains began trending on Twitter. Thundershowers were recorded in several regions, including, Borivali, Goregaon, and Powai. Amid the good weather, several netizens took to Twitter and expressed their happiness through memes. Several Twitter users also shared images and videos of the cloudy sky. As per the weather department, the monsoon is progressing normally and will most likely reach Maharashtra in the next two days.
Last year, the city had recorded more than 100 mm rain by June 9. This was declared as the onset of monsoon — two days before the official onset date of June 11. The IMD has issued a yellow alert for Mumbai over the weekend with thunderstorms, lightning and gusty winds. As per the experts, heavy rain activity in Mumbai may only pick up after June 20.
